poetry by j matthew waters

the art of letter writing

we are we are
like we’ve never been before
either a stone’s throw
away from yesterday
or light years ahead of our time

pardon me missus postman
but won’t you send
a card for me
all the way to my haiku friend
biding his time in tokyo

we are we are
continuously inventing
like a poem lost in the clouds
a drone or airmail stamp away
from landing atop your lap

may two thousand nineteen

  1. I am a letter writer and consider hand written letters sent to me be among my finest possessions

  2. Letter writing is an art we are fast losing… Beautiful poetry!
